Grace Zgraggen

May 19, 1931 — March 28, 2023

 

Grace was born in Woodland, CA on May 19, 1931, to Frank & Theresa Peters. The Peters family moved to Elk Grove in the 1940’s, where she lived for over 70 years. Grace married Edwin Zgraggen in June of 1948. She was preceded in death by husband Edwin, children Frank, Harold, brothers Frank, Manuel and sister Elizabeth.  Grace is survived by children Eddie (Kathy), Raymond (Suzie), Joan (William Schultz), and Eric (Cathy), seven grandchildren and four great granddaughters. She also has by marriage three grandchildren, five great grandchildren, several nieces and nephews.

 

Grace lived a busy, vibrant life. Her enthusiasm, perseverance, and positive attitude were an example to her family and friends. While raising five children and volunteering at Franklin Elementary School, she assisted Edwin in running the family’s ranch.  Grace enjoyed writing the weekly “Franklin Facts” column for the Elk Grove Citizen. One of her favorite articles was written while on her way to the hospital to give birth to her son, Eric.  She worked at the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office where she made many friends and was fondly known as Gracie.

 

Grace enjoyed gardening, life on her ranch and spending time with family. One of her favorite hobbies was entering sweepstakes where she won several sweepstakes over the years including a Chevrolet Impala, a Ford Pinto filled with gifts from Southgate Mall, a shopping spree at EG Market, trips to London, Hawaii, and Disneyland to name just a few.  

 

She will be greatly missed and leaves a positive impact on many lives.
